After coloring and painting (on Neenah Solar Crest Ultra Smooth cs) I then sprayed the entire panel with Glimmer Mist in Vanilla Breeze-it has such a beautiful shimmer! The image panel is layered on Prism cs and popped up on more Prism cs. The ribbon I think is from Flourishes...it's two sided, luscious and silky! I added a bow at the top and finished it off with flat backed pearls.
My lilacs are now in bloom and smell divine-they are my very favorite flower! I had posted last year about my grandfathers lilac bush which I transplanted from his home in the Adirondacks to my yard only to have workmen here destroy half of it. I transplanted it yet again to a safer part of the yard. It had never bloomed at his home that I or my mother can ever remember. It was in a lot of shade and being crowded out by a much larger tree and had no chance. I was afraid it would never survive the move but an employee of a local nursery told me that it could take as long as 3 years after a transplant for the bush to recover and if it is still getting new growth not to give up. Well...I am happy to report that after being in my yard for 3 years it now has it's first and only flower! I did such a happy dance! I have 3 others in full bloom as well so I am in my glory! Come on-happy dance with me! Ok, you don't have to...but I still will!
